Eli’s Cheesecake Offers a Magnificient Taste

A few weeks ago, Eli’s Cheesecake participated in one of the biggest culinary events of the summer, the Magnificent Taste.   The outdoor event, featuring 15 of Chicago’s most renown chefs, offered guests delicious tastes of all the great food Chicago had to offer.  Of course, no event would be complete without dessert, and Eli’s Cheesecake’s own Laurel Boger was on hand to pass out some of our blackberry cheesecake.  Check out the photos from the event below.

Eli’s Cheesecake Celebrates Art at EXPO CHICAGO’s Vernissage Benefit

Last night, we headed out to Navy Pier for the opening-night benefit of EXPO CHICAGO, Vernissage.  The event exhibits art from some of the finest galleries around the world, with the proceeds funding programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.  Eli’s Cheesecake staff took in the culture and spoke with art-world elite, all while passing out our famous cheesecake.  Learn more about EXPO CHICAGO here and check out photos from last night’s event below.

Eli’s Associates Moment of Silence in Remembrance of September 11

Today, our bakery, cafe and office gathered together for a moment of silence and remembrance of the September 11 victims and survivors as we have each year for the past 12 years.

Twelve years ago today, we gathered together and saw images that were beyond belief.  As we gathered together today, we are grateful we are able to continue to work together.

From the Eli’s Archives

We recently came across this “Book of Experience” written by our founder, Eli Schulman, in the 1940’s. He shared this booklet with friends and guests at his restaurant, Eli’s Ogden Huddle. It was located on Chicago’s west side at Ogden and Kedzie and was a favorite spot for celebrities and locals.

Eli was the ultimate entrepreneur and really knew how to take care of his guests. Our favorite gem from the booklet  is “Treat others as though you were the others” – important words to live by in business and also in life.   His slogan for the restaurant was “Good Food – Always!” Words of wisdom that we’re still committed to today.
